Subject: Enjoy!
The illustrations, colour and black and white, are so lovely in the copies of Lang's work that I've collected that I'm compelled to share them. I feel they are pieces of our history and I am happy to add them to our contributions. I hope you enjoy the books, as I am uploading all I have of the series. Please feel free to leave your notes and thoughts. Thank you for taking an interest in such a talented person and well-loved series. If you enjoy the books, please share them with others. Thank you! - Gen :)
